*Offer extended* VPN Unlimited lifetime subscription for 5 devices - £13 @ Stack Social

Found 22nd FebEdited by:"Al_Jolson"
StackSocial are doing a deal on a VPN Unlimited lifetime subscription for 5 devices for $39.99, but if you enter this code "VPNSD22" it drops to $18 (which is £12.92 according to Google).
I was looking for a VPN to install on a Firestick, which this can do. Also works on a PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android etc and can even be configured to work on a DD-WRT wireless router.

n.b. This deal was expired but the offer seems to keep being extended. Code still works as of 05/03/18.

Seems to be location in the USA so under the "14 Eyes". Im a fan on NordVPN and based in Panama so not in the 5,9 or 14 eyes

Nice site here to show which ones are or not:

Remember though, lifetime is for the product and/or company, not your lifetime.

A few years ago I bought lifetime access to another service, and they were no more a few months later.

Anyone used this? Looking for something for the in laws. I use torguard and that is absolutely perfect. Don't want to buy a bad vpn. So many horror stories.
Ok, quick review search. Summary below seems ok at a glance. Some session is putting me off though.

FOR
Low prices
Bitcoin supported
Clients for almost everything
Consistently fast

AGAINST
DNS leak on Windows
No kill switch
Some session logging
Windows client lacks configuration options

i had this 3 years ago for £20 and i think i have a few more months left , that site is the only one who does a good deal. When i wanted discount to put on kodi boxes, they said i needed min 100 accounts a week for a deal.... to much for my needs
Reviews not good
Many have identified a number of problems, including IP address leaks, DNS leaks, no kill switch, and mediocre speeds. Not recommended.

I'm after a vpn for occasional use, mainly for iptv over vodafone mobile data as they seem to block my iptv supplier. Would the problems (dns leaks, ip address leaks) be an issue? I'm not really after total anonymity, just a way to bypass the block and this seems cheap.. I've looked into a few that are a few quid a month with fantastic reviews but I can really justify it for a few hours a month.

I bought a 3 year VPN Unlimited subscription from Stack Social around 4 years ago and it was absolutely fine for my infrequent use. Decent speeds, access to blocked Torrent sites, overseas Netflix etc. I think they are fairly big players in the VPN market now given the number of platforms they have developed their client to run on. They've certainly been around for a few years anyway.
All the other VPNs I was looking at were going to be £5 - £10 a month, so £13 for a lifetime will do me just fine!
I have just bought,and it gives a UK ip address for Iplayer etc which Windscribe didn't,so heat from me and £13 is a good price for my likely usage
I've been using this for over a year, paid £18. Fine for me, got access to iplayer. works on Linux, M$, Android and router.
Speed hasn't been a problem, faster than my 60gb-free-a-month Windscribe backup.

Exactly this. If there are no more new subscriptions then they will close, there is no way their servers/bandwidth costs etc are bought at a life time supply. They need new subs to pay the ongoing monthly costs. Its pretty much a pyramid scheme, no new members and the whole thing collapses.

For that reason I am not voting hot or cold.
Would this allow SkyGo to be accessed outside the UK?
I use VPN Unlimited, having subscribed to a very similar deal maybe 18 months ago. It's good overall, for torrents, international travel, getting round content filtering. It does seem to slow down Broadband quite a bit, I think particularly when the VPN server is busy. It didn't help me with IPTV but that might have been me not knowing what to do. I use it on PC and iOS, harder to get it going on other platforms (e.g. Synology). On iOS it sometimes interferes with public wifi with logon screens.

support is very good - 1 on 1 email support to get you going.

It's only £13 though. Some VPNs charge that in under 2 months.
If your uk internet provider blockes you from certain sites and you use a VPN which gives you a UK IP address, could your internet provider (i.e. BT, Virgin, Talk Talk or Sky) not be able locate and block you ?

HP Lovecraft used to be a big fan of the VPN horror story genre.

Your ISP already knows where you live so they don't need to locate you. The VPN makes it look to your ISP that your internet traffic is coming from a normal UK ip address instead of a site they have blocked.

Your ISP is also quite capable of blocking traffic to known VPN sites or IP ranges and so preventing any traffic going to them which means they are no longer usable by you. It then becomes a cat and mouse game as the VPN uses new sites or IP's and the ISP detects and blocks them.

I can't see an ISP blocking VPN ip's unless its in their t&c's that you can't use them. There are legitimate reasons for using one afterall.

It already happens. Most UK ISP's block access to Pirate Bay, they could easily do the same with any give VPN networks VPN sites/IP ranges. Its not banning VPN outright, only sites know to be used to circumvent copyright. If the media companies such as Netflix were to ovtain a court order to tell the ISP's to block a site/range they would be bound to do so.

Its also common knowledge that the media companies such as NetFlix block access to VPN's known to them. Netflix started this a few years ago, They can do the same, if its a VPN that is know to them as one to try and get around geolocks they could simply block the IP range that VPN company uses.


Media companies are not dumb, they could subscribe to a VPN just like you do, and then set it up so they can then detect IP's in use and block them.

As I said its cat and mouse, take the pirate bay example, the ISP's block one PB site and a mirror appears.

You can't compare pirate bay to a VPN. That's just silly. The court order was obtained because pb's main purpose is to provide access to content illegally, hence the court order. No court is going to partially block ip ranges that a legitimate VPN uses, as they haven't got time to maintain it. Plus it goes against net neutraility. Plus ip address aren't static so you could end up blocking somebodies private IP address when they switch. It would get too messy. If you believe its an issue, fair enough. Personally I don't. Also, its only 13 quid.
It appears the offer has been extended for another 7 days. So deal should be unexpired.
I use this, picked up a lifetime sub for about £12 about 3 years ago IIRC. I use it at home on my fibre connection and I get 86 Mbps down, 30 Mbps up via a local UK VPN server, so plenty fast enough for me.

I can torrent in peace (they have a few servers that allow torrent traffic, most don't) and when I am away, sat on a guest wireless network I can encrypt my traffic and tunnel back to the UK.

The client is Ok, it has specific 'Stop DNS Leak' option in the later versions as well as the ability to 'up' the security. dnsleaktest.com seems to confirm it works. I not going anything particularly illegal (just perhaps immoral :)) so a hyper secure/"you can have my traffic logs when you try them from my cold dead fingers" VPN service does not really intrest me, particularly when they charge many pounds a month.

They offer a specific iplayer server - not tried it but I am assuming it works. I have emailed support a couple of times over the years and found them helpful.

The only thing I have found irritating is the connection can drop and pick up, this seems to upset QBtorrent so I have to restart it get my torrents back up and going. Can happen a couple of times a week.

A stonkin bargain for the use I have had out of it over the years...
OP .. "n.b. This deal was expired but the offer has been extended for another 7 days. Code still works. 23/02/18.".


So I take it, this is no longer £12-£13 in total again?, or ... thanx.
